I think these days with the increase in pollution and also impure food and other such things like most of us used to be in front of the screen of laptops, personal computers and mobile, and these do affect us a lot. I have seen these days even kids wearing glasses in that shorter age. What About you? At What Age You Were Required to Wear Eye Glasses? Or You are not required to wear Eye glasses? Please share.

I don't have the best of lifestyles and I spend a lot of time in front of screens. But I don't wear glasses. If I ever get a driving license, I'll know whether I need them or not. I think my parents started to wear them in their late 40s, who knows if I'll manage to reach such age without wearing glasses. I wouldn't mind if I had to wear them earlier, but I guess they're kind of uncomfortable. I don't even wear sunglasses.

I don't even know. Probably about 13. My mom took all us kids to have our eyes checked. I remember wanting to get contact lenses like my siblings but the doc said no. They gave me prescription glasses for Amblyopia aka. "lazy eye". Years later, my lazy eye must have improved because the doc didn't mention it this time. Now I just have glasses for reading
I think I was twelve (high school) when I was required to wear prescription glasses. Instructions from the ophthalmologist were to wear them at all times but since I was trying to be cool at that age I really din't wear it as much. I only got to wear them religiously when I was already in college because the heavy load of reading materials there strains my eyes. Been wearing my glasses since then, about 7 years now.
